Let's Light Up Ladner Village!
The Ladner Business Assoocation (LBA) with support from the City of Delta has launched a three-year campaign to light up Ladner Village throughout the winter in 2016, 2017 and 2018. The campaign will result in the trees on 48th Avenue, Delta Street and Haviland Street being adorned with clear LED lights for the winter season from November until March.  

To make this dream become a reality, our goal is to raise $30,000 over three years.

In 2016 & 2017, thanks to numerous local residents and businesses, we raise more than $21,000. That enables us to purchase hundreds of strings of good quality LED lights and pay for the labour to install, maintain and remove them at the end of the season. (Removal every spring maximizes the lights' life expectancy and allow the trees to grow unhindered.) Ladner Village was lit every evening from November to March from dusk to 11pm.

In 2018, we need to raise $9,500 to cover the cost of this year's maintenance, installation and removal. Will you help us Light Up Ladner Village?

Every donation of $25, $50 and $100 gets us closer to lighting up Ladner Village for another season. If you give $1,000 or mover during the three-year campaign (this is Year 3), you will receive a sign of recognition that will be displayed near one of the village trees. We appreciate every dollar you invest in this community campaign.

Light Up Ladner Village FAQ


Is there a breakdown of how the raised funds will be allocated?
Through research, the Ladner Business Association has determined we will need approximately 500 strings of lights to illuminate Ladner Village. Each string will cost $50.00 before taxes. This cost includes  the purchase of the strings, the annual labour cost for installation and takedown, the equipment rentals for installation takedown, yearly testing, storage and maintenance and a contingency for potential vandalism and wear & tear. Additionally we have planned budget for signage and contingency.

How can I get more information about the Light Up Ladner
campaign?
The Ladner Business Association would be happy to hear from you and tell you more about the campaign.

Can I get a tax receipt for my donation?
The Ladner Business Association is unable to issue receipts for tax purposes as the organization is not a registered charity.

Let's Light Up Ladner Village again!

Remember how Ladner Village sparkled last winter when the trees on 48th Avenue, Delta Street and Haviland Street were adorned with clear LED lights?

Last year, thanks to the numerous local residents and businesses, we raised more than $13,000. That enabled us to purchase hundreds of strings of good quality lights and pay for the labour to install, maintain and remove them. (Removal every spring maximizes the lights' life expectancy and lets the trees grow unhindered.)

To Light Up Ladner Village this year, we need to raise $9,000. Please help us spread the word! Share this campagin with your friends, family, neighbours and fellow businesses. Every $25, $50 and $100 gets us closer to lighting up Ladner Village for another season.

I hope the stone clock will be staying in this plan. If it does and it will be maintained then I will donate. I have to say I'm not impressed with the trees that were decided on. I do like the lights idea though. Looking forward to seeing it finished.
